Actor Mark Hamill loves giving out advice and sharing fun behind-the-scenes tidbits about his time on Star Wars, so fans love it even more when he does both!
Earlier this week, the voice actor behind the Joker in the Batman animated series had some good advice for his Twitter followers.

On Tuesday, Mark retweeted it to his own account with some advice that he says was given to him by The Dirty Dozen actor Lee Marvin: “Never stand when you can sit.”

On Wednesday, Mark took Lee’s advice to its “logical conclusion,” adding, “Never sit when you can lie down.” The photo showed Mark lying down with his eyes closed in “A New Hope,” in “The Empire Strikes Back,” and when he was lying on the floor at a recent fan convention. The photos read, “Napping Since 1977.”

One user retweeted a meme of Luke Skywalker, calling him the Hide-and-Seek Champion from 1983 to 2015, referring to the decades-long time lapse between the original trilogy and the sequel trilogy. After George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney in 2012, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill reprised their respective roles for 2015’s “The Force Awakens.”

“This one’s good for the back,” another fan commented, showing a photo of Luke hanging upside down from the Wampa cave in Hoth. Although in theory hanging upside down can have temporary benefits for back pain, Healthline warns that more studies are needed to confirm if hanging upside down offers any lasting health benefits.
As kids we fight tooth and nail to avoid a nap. As adults we would commit major crimes just to grab 30 mins of shut eye. The struggle is real.

Hopefully, Mark stays on Twitter to provide his fans with good advice for a long time yet. Although plenty of users have threatened to quit the social media service since Elon Musk reached a deal with the Twitter board of directors to buy the company, Mark isn’t going anywhere.
“No matter who owns it, no matter who’s on it, I’m staying to engage with you, listen to diverse opinions & to keep fighting the good fight! (also, to keep posting the inane tweets I’m known for),” he wrote, adding the hashtag #TwitterTenacity.
